The Unmarked second-hand GUNDAM of Jetan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jeddak Odysseus Carter with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 16.448 billion Jetanese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thark. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jetanese economy, worth a remarkable 2,187 trillion Jetanian Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,990 Jetanian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, the Thark Film Festival recently voted 'Jetanese Getting Hit By Football' as best film, it is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jetan's national animal is the Thoat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jetan is ranked 163,982nd in the world and 57th in Esquarium for Most Inclusive, scoring 24.83 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
